Akshardham, New Delhi
Akshardham literally translates us to 'The divine abode of God.' This huge Hindu temple is situated on the banks of the Yamuna river, and was inaugurated on November 6 2005 by the late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. This exemplary piece of architecture is definitely visited by tourists and locals alike.
The descriptively carved temple exuberates beauty, pride and grandeur. It combines ancient traditional Indian styles with modern sense of architecture. This place is always thronging with devotees, present either inside the temple proper or besides the water pools which are adorned with fountains. A visit to this place is very spiritually enriching. People find solace in the power of prayer to their gods. No matter how many times you come here, you are always awestruck with the precision and finesse with which the temple has been sculpted.
